My apologies for the late blog post! I hope you are as ready for the weekend as I am! Happy Friday!
I don’t know if I will ever understand men completely. Dating can be like this crazy ongoing education of human behavior, and male behavior is my major (or minor?). Since I have mainly been dating younger men lately, I am trying to meet and date men older than 40. Call it my something new for summer.
I had a lively debate with my guy of interest the other day. He is older than I am so we were sort of recounting our past relationships and experiences. He made some comment about his last girlfriend and the reason they broke up. It had something to do with a surprising revelation about her that he discovered after a year of dating her. He wouldn’t tell me what it was specifically but he said that it was because of what she had done in the past.
Well that sort of made me pause a bit. I was wondering if he was that overly critical and judgmental type of guy. You know the type that goes over your past with a fine tooth comb and “vets” you like you are about to be his running mate in a presidential election? Yeah, that’s annoying.
We all have “a past” because we are living and breathing humans, not mannequins. I think having “skeletons” in the closet gets blown out of proportion. Let’s put it into perspective: What kind of past would warrant a break up? Would you break up with someone because they did not tell you about it?
Do you think we are understanding enough of a person’s past? Do we use it as yet another excuse not to commit to a relationship? Discuss!
